Well the week has come where we get to hang up the sticks and strings, and break out the big guns….literally. This week brought in Five guys from Iowa, Texas, Washington, California, and Nebraska. We were very excited about getting out with rifles and presenting opportunities at some of these big elk that bested us during archery season. The first day we packed in was a nasty, rainy, wet day. We spent most of the day warming up and drying out our gear in preparation for opening morning. On opening day Rod, myself, and first year guide Troy, went three different directions from camp and managed to put down three nice bulls! Not a bad way to kick off the season! Willy from Washington state managed to bag the biggest bull of the week, a really nice 6 point. Troy was able to guide Brian from California to his first bull elk, a nice 5 point. Also, with the help of “Hawaii” Jake, our camp jack, I was able to get Todd from Nebraska onto a really nice five point bull way up high in the snow. All on the first day!! On day three “Ranger Rod” guided Willy’s son Shawn into another nice Five point bull. They made a great stalk and got up close and personal, shooting this bull at about 60 yards! After several days of hard hunting, and some close calls, Troy got Scott, from Iowa, into another nice herd of elk and was able to harvest a young bull at less than 140 yards. Five hunters……..five bulls…….in four days of hunting, not too bad! Congratulations guys, what a hunt!!
